NHS starts new mentoring program


The National Honor Society celebrates academic achievement, leadership, character, and service to the community. Members of the WWCHS National Honor Society are busy this spring with classes, sports, and various extracurricular activities, but these NHS members find time each week to work with students at the middle school in a new mentoring program. Mentoring refers to a developmental relationship in which a more experienced person helps a less experienced person develop in a specified capacity; and in our new mentoring program, NHS students encourage academic achievement by helping middle-grade students build confidence and develop more effective study habits. Shown here are Shaundra Norman, Beunka Stephens, Tiffany Garcia, Michael Edwards, Ana Turner, and Erika Jefferson, program coordinator.
